This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hisako Shimizu was born in Japan and moved to the United States with her family in 1920. In 1925, when her father moved the family back to Japan, Hisako decided to stay in San Francisco. She studied at the California School of Fine Arts where she met her husband, George Matsusaburo Hibi.

In the 1940's the couple was sent to internment camps where they along with other artists offered art classes to other inmates. The Hibis also painted pictures capturing the daily lives of the camps.
